Do you feel like you've learned a lot about the Civil War? But have you ever thought about what happened after the war ended? What did freedom mean for the former slaves in the South? How did North and South struggle over the terms of reunion? The years after 1865 were so contentious (and violent!) that many have called this era of Reconstruction a "second Civil War." Learn why in Dr. Bowman's Reconstruction course.

Katherine Hinzman ’15

“The CSU History Department provided me with a foundational methodological approach that I continue to exercise to this day. The relationships I established with professors there allowed me to develop essays in a way that set me on the right track to writing and exploring larger and broader topics and theories in academia. I particularly benefitted…from the department’s encouragement to undertake history courses as a visiting student at Oxford through CSU's Center for Global Engagement. This is what ultimately led me to apply and pursue my Masters at Oxford following my graduation from CSU and continue with my doctoral research in the UK.”

Katherine is now an art history PhD candidate at the University of York, focusing on the Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones.
